» AirBorn’s patented, single-piece compression contact system (top left) exhibits lower resistance than contacts comprised of multiple components. These contacts also support ganged configurations, in which multiple contacts are loaded within the same interposer contact slot. (Contact slots are pictured in the bottom row with just one contact in each). The Z Series Solderless Compression Interposer pictured here (top right) employs 0.5A contacts arranged for both signal and power but incorporates some ganged contact configurations to support higher currents.
